40.3 million people are victims of modern day slavery, which includes 24.9 million in forced labor and 15.4 million in forced marriages. Of the 24.9 million people entrapped by forced labor, 4.8 million people are in forced sexual exploitation, which disproportionately affects women. 99% of victims of commercial sex are women and girls. These are staggering statistics, and New York City is one of the largest destinations for trafficked women in the entire United States in large part due to high demand and access to ports. Human traffickers exploit victims in all five boroughs and target the majority of victims specifically for sex trade. The sex trade is also a billion-dollar industry with a demand that grows each year. Within the United States, there are large disparities between the organizations that advocate on the part of the victims, law enforcement, and legislation to combat the problem. At risk youth continue to be trafficked disproportionally because of the lack of funding in poor communities and in the foster care system.
Slavery is found throughout California, but major hubs are centered on Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, and San Francisco. According to the 2011 Department of State report, California, together with New York, Texas, and Oklahoma, has the largest concentrations of survivors of human trafficking.
98% of sex trafficking victims worldwide are female. An estimated 403,000 people are being trafficked in the United States. New York City is a gateway and one of the largest destinations for trafficked women in the country. Right now in every borough, women are being forced into prostitution.
Over 35,000 malnourished, caged and tortured children have been reported rescued or found deceased in underground tunnels beneath large US cities including one beneath New York Central Park, “with more coming” according to reporter Timothy Charles Holmseth of the Pentagon Pedophile Task Force on 3 April.
There’s a Secret Tunnel Under Central Park. … Archival maps of the New York subway system have included this “ghost tunnel” twice: Once, in the summer of 1995, and a second time during the winter of 1998. In both instances, the tunnel was used to temporarily reroute the Q train during construction.
While some of NYC’s old tunnels and stations seem to have been neglected for good, many are reused—like the abandoned tunnel below Central Park that became part of the Second Avenue subway—and repurposed, as graffiti canvases, art galleries, party spaces, or even a VIP entrance to one of New York’s most luxurious
More than 13,000 people were reported missing in New York City last year. While most are promptly found, hundreds of people become missing long term (missing for 60 or more days.)
800,000 childrenAccording to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States — that’s roughly 2,000 per day. Of those, there are 115 child “stranger abduction” cases each year, which means the child was taken by an unknown person. Now ask yourself what is really happening to the children that are going missing. Human trafficking has to play a big role children just do not go missing for nothing.
